eVolution Academy

"The reality, as I have learned in the past 3 weeks, is that online learning can be just as effective, if not more so, than a classroom setting. As a student here myself, having the ability to read, research, follow up, and give and receive feedback at my own pace made me think outside the box. I was able to own my own learning, and challenged myself more than if this had been a face-to-face session." –HACC faculty member
